Overview

There's no doubt that the emergence of social media has taken over the Internet landscape. The remarkable growth of Facebook and Twitter has forced everyone, including investors, to take notice—and provided an unprecedented level of access to some of the world's most talented investors and resources in the process.

While this phenomenon has taken the world by storm, a majority of investors are still unaware of what it takes to build a profitable portfolio in the age of social media. That's why author Zack Miller has created TradeStream Your Way to Profits. Miller embodies the nexus between asset management, equity research, and new Internet distribution technologies. As an asset manager, he writes extensively about the changes and opportunities in online finance for investors, advisors, and investor relations professionals—and now, with his new book, he'll show you how these changes have allowed savvy investors to make the most of their time in today's dynamic markets.

TradeStream Your Way to Profits skillfully outlines a new way to look at investing that utilizes the Internet and social media to better research and mimic successful investing strategies. Chapter by chapter, Miller analyzes how social media enables investors to profit via eight different types of investment approaches, from cloning top hedge fund managers' stock picks to identifying and piggybacking the next Warren Buffett. Along the way, he explains each strategy in detail—why it works, its historical performance, and how to implement it—and reveals how to use different tactics to exploit the power of social media.

While some of the strategies discussed have been studied closely, others are so new that they're just beginning to be researched. Regardless, all have been inspired by the transparency that the Internet provides and most can be implemented via free websites.

The Internet has created totally new models and methods for researching and making investments. TradeStream Your Way to Profits explores these changes and explains the many ways you can financially benefit from them.
